BBQ Destinations: Cheap Tickets

Looking for a new place to visit this summer? Cheap Tickets has just published their list of the top barbecue destinations in the United States. While the cities it lists are good, and all of the restaurants mentioned are worth a visit, I don't agree with all of their choices. I know there are a lot of other barbecue joints I'd go to before heading to these. But this is a great place to start. Here's their list...

In Atlanta, GA: Fat Matt's Rib Shack
In Charlotte, NC: Carolina Country BBQ
In New Orleans, LA: ZydeQue
Austin, TX: The Salt Lick
Nashville, TN: Corky's Ribs and BBQ
In Savannah, GA: Sweet Leaf Smokery
And finally in Louisville, KY: Mark's Feed Store BBQ

Of course, the best barbecue trip would be to get into your car and drive! Just get into the Carolinas and keep going South. Keep your eyes and nose open. Follow that plume of wood smoke and who knows what you'll find. I've found some of the best barbecue joints that way.

Nice blog. As an immigrant from Tennessee I need a good guide on BBQ.

I've added you to my BK foodie blogroll.

On a slightly different subject, I'm thinking about getting a Big Green Egg.

Have you heard any reports from anyone who actually owns one, or better yet, have you eaten anything cooked or smoked in one?

Fat Matt's is fun-- got the right vibe for a bbq joint and they have blues by night and unlimited sweet tea. I don't think the ribs had any smoke, and they were 'falling of the bone', but tasted great and their sauce is awesome, with a nice kick. I brought home some bottles.

I'm always skeptical of these 'best bbq' lists. I've yet to see one that I agree w/ 100%.
